Özet

Purpose: Cataract is an unavoidable complication when radiation therapy includes the lens, even in small doses. Alterations in the ion content of the lens were considered to play an essential role in cataract formation. In this experimental study, the effect of verapamil on ion concentrations within the irradiated lenses was investigated in rats.
